LRQC Website picWelcome to our COVID 19 Pages

Welcome to the Northern Circuit’s Covid-19 website. It is a resource which none of us could ever have imagined needing and one which, we hope, will be short-lived in duration. But for as long as we are in the midst of a disease which has stolen lives and disrupted livelihoods, we shall continue to provide you, our friends and colleagues, with vital information and resources to enable you to navigate your way through the coming weeks and months.

Good luck, stay well and I very much look forward to seeing you all – in person – once we have got through this together.

Lisa Roberts QC, Leader of the Northern Circuit

What we are doing

The Northern Circuit is supporting all our barristers and our wider legal community during the coronavirus pandemic. We have set up a Circuit Task Force to analyse, provide and distribute as much information as possible to help us all to stay safe, in work and to keep the justice system moving.  

We provide advice when asked and we want to learn from each other, barristers, judiciary, solicitors and court staff.

Throughout the week our Leader Lisa Roberts QC updates the Circuit. 

Our Bulletins are a round up of what has happened recently. They are a good place to start for the latest guidance. There are also documents to help in each jurisdiction, as well as advice on finances, technology, wellbeing and ethical support. 

You can find all the links on the left hand side.

We are keen to get and keep remote hearings working well.

Please email with any feedback we can share.

As well as the wealth of information on here, you will find daily updates on our Twitter feed @CircuitNorth
